We have been really lucky with both our kids since they started school they have loved it and look forward to going. They enjoy hanging out with their friends and taking part in gym but they also love to learn. This could be from starting them both off young with at home workbooks that help with shapes, counting, ABC's and so much more.
We used to sit with the kids when they were toddlers and have them work on these books all the time and they loved them. They would bring out the books to "play". Now that the kids are older and in grade 2 and 3 they still enjoy these books. We always have a few workbooks on hand for each of them and they pull them out to practice. P always challenges himself and will work away on the books until he gets it. A loves to do them with either Mom or Dad unless it is something she has done already and she will bring out the book to have Mom "mark" her work.
Recently A had the opportunity to check out some Star Wars workbooks for Math, Spelling and Writing for grade 2.
There are twelve titles in this new series. Three for each Pre-K through 2nd Grade.
"Each book digs deep into core subjects, including numbers, ABCs, phonics, and reading readiness for younger grades, and math, reading, and writing for the older ones. The material, which aligns with national Common Core State Standards, is designed to reinforce essential concepts and lessons taught in schools. Any child, not just fans of Star Wars—but yes, those fans will be especially delighted (as will reluctant learners)—will love the “A” is for Anakin approach to phonics. Kids will practice learning numbers by counting and circling X-wing starfighters and clone troopers. Master place values by sorting groups of Wookiees. There are math problems—Yoda is holding 7 lightsabers. 5 of the lightsabers are blue. The rest are green. How many green lightsabers is he holding? And Language Arts—Circle the correct homophone in this sentence: Luke is a Jedi knight/night.
Featuring favorite characters like Luke Skywalker, Queen Amidala, Yoda, and Obi-Wan Kenobi, and other creatures, monsters, Jedi, and Sith, the workbooks are filled with thousands of original illustrations drawing from all six Star Wars movies and the expanded Star Wars universe.
Learn well, you will."
My daughter loves her workbooks and we have spent many hours going over different worksheets some that are refreshers but a lot of the work is stuff she will be learning this year. My son loves to help his sister on some of the problems that she hasn't done before as he is a grade ahead and will tell her "you will learn that this year". Both the kids are huge Star Wars fans which makes these books even more fun to use.
